Former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko appears to have succumbed to pressure and decided to take action by hiring an official fashion designer to assist him in selecting the perfect outfit for the day.
Netizens have often criticized Mike Sonko for his poor fashion sense, with some mocking his “Kamba roots” due to his frequently dull and tasteless fashion choices.
While acknowledging the influence of his Ukambani heritage on his flamboyant attire, Sonko requested his social media followers to aid him in finding the ideal pair of shoes to complement his blue suit, as he embarks on the search for an official designer.
“Good morning watu wangu. Don’t you know that I am a proud Kamba, and we love to embrace vibrant colors? Unfortunately, I don’t have a personal designer. Please help me choose the shoes that perfectly match this suit,” he tweeted.
He also announced that he is willing to pay a monthly salary of Ksh.30,000 to the fortunate individual who will assume the role of managing his fashion affairs.
“And I’m also looking for a designer. Starting salary is 30k monthly. Please leave your phone number here. To avoid being misled by fraudsters, I will personally contact you today when I’m free. Have a great day,” he added.
Kenyans have flooded the comment section, competing with one another to demonstrate their expertise in fashion while attempting to capture Sonko’s attention, openly sharing their personal phone numbers.
As a lover of bright colors, flashy rings, and bold sunglasses, Mike Sonko’s unconventional fashion choices have consistently grabbed headlines throughout the last decade.
